Hillwalkers

For five city friends, a day out hiking for charity in the Irish countryside of Glenkill takes a turn for the worse when one of them suffers an accident. Forced to look for a shortcut off the mountain, the friends cross onto private property in an effort to get back to the main road ignoring all the” No Trespassing” and “Keep Out” signs and inadvertently stumbling upon some illegally killed wildlife. When confronted by the landowners with a seemingly friendly offer of help the friends find themselves at an isolated farm and soon realize getting help is the least of their problems. A slow burning confrontation eventually descends into violence as the friends become trapped in a deadly battle for survival against a deranged and ruthless psychopath.

“ A bogland terror, a desolate landscape, human prey outgunned; but what bands the city folks together tears the country folk apart.” Dublin Inquirer
